Once you start to run more than 4 monitors, most computers start to struggle. So, then you need more computers to have more monitors 🙂 And then, you need to share one keyboard and mouse across multiple computers… so you need a mouse and keyboard sharing utility, that preferably also shares your clipboard.
I just added the 5th monitor to my office setup:
All you need is to install Mouse without Borders on both machines. The utility allows you to use keyboard, mouse and clipboard from one computer on another one.
I have been finetuning my office-at-home recently, and it turns out I have lots of computer screens available. However, it is not always easy to connect multiple (like 4) screens to one computer or laptop. What if you could use a piece of software to extend your available screens onto another computer entirely?
That’s where spacedesk comes in…
Ensure both computers or laptops are on the same LAN
Install the server software on your main PC (the one you actually want to work on)
Windows 10 64 bit or 32 bit or Others
Repeat steps 4-6 for each secondary monitor you want to add from other pcs
These show up in Windows and you can adjust resolution:
Basically this is screen extension or mirroring technology, so you will still be bound to network speed and may experience some compression, because your main pc is actually sending frames over the network to the other pc. Overall, it seems to work quite well.
